A girl can never have too many make up brushes, a saying that is something true to my heart. I’m forever adding to my collection and I have currently lost count of how many I own. Of course, there are a fair few that I always use, but I am always up for trying new ones, especially those that claim to buff and blend foundation, they’re my favourite ones.
EcoTools is a brand that I have never heard of, so when I got the chance to review them, I jumped straight on it. EcoTools is most notably known for its incredibly soft make up brushes made with 100% cruelty-free bristles and bamboo handles. Packaged in its own eco-friendly pouches, these brushes are great for travelling with, especially when you don’t want to get make up mess everywhere in your toiletries bag. They’re reasonably priced as well as effective, so enough of the waffle and I’ll get straight in to it.
EcoTools Flat Foundation Brush £7.99 (*) – This one was actually my least favourite from the range, mainly because I felt that the bristles were slightly harsh and made my skin feel a bit uncomfortable. It did apply my foundation smoothly though, but due to the bristles being a bit pokey, I don’t think I will continue to use it.
EcoTools Tapered Blush Brush £7.99 (*) – The bristles on this brush is so soft, making it perfect for applying blush and other face powders. It’s large head ensures it collates enough product for an even application and makes blending a lot easier.
EcoTools Custom Coverage Buffing Brush £8.99 (*) – My favourite from the range and could give the famous Real Techniques Buffing Brush a run for it’s money. This brush has a medium sized flat head making it very easy to blend and buff foundation. It’s rounded edges ensures all the ‘hard to get to areas‘ are covered and smoothed out. The bristles are soft, made of good quality hair and just an all round nice little brush for applying any type of face make up, be it powder, foundation or blush.
EcoTools Bamboo Deluxe Concealer Brush £5.49 (*) – Another little gem, this brush is perfect for what it’s set out to do, apply concealer. Best used to blend under the eye as the bristles are extremely soft and smooth. The shorter edges makes it great for twisting and ensuring the concealer is blended evenly. When using to conceal blemishes or dark spots, the flatter part makes for easy distribution of the product and again, the edges ensures it is nicely covered.
